What times can we work? What time does it start and finish?

At each site we will be working from 9 am–1 pm followed by a time of celebration.

What do I wear?

Work attire is appropriate. Please take into account the weather for the day. Volunteers may be inside or out depending on their assignment. Those working outside should bring sunblock.

What types of work might I be doing?

Classroom assistance jobs may vary from working on bulletin boards, to cutting out materials, to sorting and filing, decorating, etc. Facility improvement jobs at schools may include painting blacktop games, washing windows and desks, weeding, landscaping, etc.

What do I need to bring?

Paperwork
Don’t forget to bring the liability release forms, signed and ready to turn in. This will make registration fast-n-easy. If you forget, we’ll have spare forms you can complete.

Water
we are trying to cut down on garbage and request that you bring your own water containers. You will be able to refill them easily at your site, and we will provide one if you forget.

Food
We will provide snacks, but you may want to bring your own additional food/lunch just in case.

Do I need to bring food?

Some sites will be providing snacks, but you may want to bring your own just in case. Also, please remember to bring your own water container.

Do I need to bring tools?

That depends on your assignment. Your Project Coordinator will let you know of specific tools that will be needed. Gardening and weeding tools are the most needed tools at most sites. If you bring any tool, please be sure it is labeled with your name and contact information.

Will I be working alone?

In most cases, people will be working in small teams, led by a team leader. Again it depends on the nature of your assignment, but in general, most people will be working in a small group.

Can my kids participate in Community Serve Day?

Absolutely! They are welcome to work alongside of you at any of the sites. We would encourage you to be sure when you arrive that morning at check-in that you request a child-friendly project.
